I Just Saw the Future

 
I attended my son’s graduation for his Master’s Degree last week in Orlando. I saw the future.
Students from many parts of the world paraded across the stage to receive their degrees. Strobe lights flashed and digital music played.
 
 
Each department granting degrees had ten to twenty faculty members present from various parts of the country. As the students passed before them, there were hand shakes and hugs and sometimes long embraces.
 
 
But, and here is the kicker. This was the first time any of them had ever met any of their faculty or fellow students in the flesh!  The whole enterprise had occurred in cyberspace!
